December 2019 Wrap Up/ posted in: Reading
I read 13 books in December.
The books I read were:
- I didn’t finish any audiobooks
- Set in the U.S., England, and India
What was my favorite?
This whole series was good. All of the women are involved in something scandalous.
I did it! I finished the challenge. I didn’t finish the books that I thought I would but I made it with room to spare.

From My Shelf
I’m adding a section to encourage me to read books that I’ve had sitting around for a long time.
This just came out so it hasn’t been sitting around for a long time. But, I preordered it and it came and I didn’t pick it up immediately. That tends to be the kiss of death and means I never get around to reading it. So I made sure to read this one this month.
My goal book for this was Pachinko. I tried. I really did. I’m probably about 90% done but it is a slog.
- Read a nonfiction book about the country – or
- Read fiction written by a native of the country or someone living for a long time in the country.
Nothing new this month
